January 24, 2012 – Earlier this month saw the launch of the Hydro One FNMI Award, an academic scholarship for First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) students to support their post-secondary education in power-related studies.

“Our Hydro One FNMI Award provides students with monetary support and hands-on work experience that can help them learn, grow and achieve in power-related careers,” said Laura Formusa, president and CEO, Hydro One. “We are proud to support the FNMI community and to be recognized for playing an important role in increasing the representation of First Nations, Métis and Inuit people in our industry.”

The Hydro One FNMI Award is granted annually to two FNMI students (where possible, one male and one female) studying power-related disciplines at a recognized Ontario university or community college. The recipients of the award are also offered a developmental work term at Hydro One.
